    Is this still common

    Would be food production working on the factory

    No such thing as a "back week" or "week in hand" you get paid for working week 1 in week 2.

    Amount of old people who say "back week" to young people is hilarious.

    Hilarious to you if that's your sense of humour

    Yes, it's still in use. You'll be paid for week 1 at the end of week 2 so make arrangements for a week of no income. Ignore the pedantic crap above.

    If you're in an hourly paid job, they won't know what you're owed for week 1 until it is finished and your clock is reconciled.

    Therefore week 2 is the soonest they can pay you for it.
